David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.


Eight-Years Ago Today — California

Part 2: After our peaceful morning walk in Yosemite valley, we went back to have lunch at the cafeteria in Curry village. The plan for the afternoon was an impromptu workshop on IR photography. We went to our tent cabins with the plan to meet in 30 minutes. All of a sudden I hear what sounds like thunder. But my mind said that can't be right because the sky was blue with no clouds. The noise kept getting louder, sounding like a freight train. Our leader yells run for your life there is a rock fall. Curry village is located right next to very high rock face. All of a sudden we were engulfed in a dust cloud. I was lucky to have a camera with me (and two more in my car in the parking lot). Most people staying at Curry village were out doing things and visiting the rest of Yosemite Valley.
